Microsoft: we're not bound by GPLv3

Posted on Friday, July 06 2007 @ 16:00:25 CEST by


Microosft announced yesterday that it won't provide support or updates for GPLv3 under the deal it inked in November with Novell to administer certificates for Linux distribution:
Microsoft also said July 5 that its agreement with Novell, as well as those with Linux rivals Xandros and Linspire, were unaffected by the release June 29 of GPLv3 by the Free Software Foundation.

For its part, Novell said it will support customers with a regular SUSE Linux Enterprise Server subscription, regardless of the terms of the certificates provided by Microsoft.

Microsoft is "not a party to the GPLv3 license, and none of its actions are to be misinterpreted as accepting status as a contracting party of GPLv3 or assuming any legal obligations under such license," Horacio Gutierrez, Microsoft's vice president of intellectual property and licensing, said July 5.
